It is with a great deal of enthusiasm that the staff and I welcome all new and returning students and parents to a new school year! Each new school year brings joy, excitement, and anticipation for the many great opportunities our children will experience and this 2014/2015 session will be no exception.
Be assured that measures are in place in all our schools to ensure the safety of staff and pupils against the Ebola virus. Members of staff have been trained and are prepared to ensure these measures are enforced smoothly.
Corona Schools Trust Council continues to set benchmarks for education in our country. In selecting any Corona School for your children, you have chosen a school noted for its innovation and dedication to delivering education for the 21st century. We welcome our new families to the Corona community and wish to extend our invitation to you to be active and informed members of our school community.
We will be celebrating the Trust Council’s 60th anniversary next year and in alignment with that, our underlying theme for this school year is “Affirming the Past, the Present and Educating the Future”. As an organisation, we are focused on providing world-class education and we have done so for the last six decades. We have consistently developed, built on our success stories and leveraged on our wealth of experience to remain relevant in present times. Finally, we pride ourselves on being adaptable which is key in ensuring continued delivery of world class education in the future.
We have achieved this by virtue of the fact that over the years all members of the school community have been actively involved in the life of the school, and fulfillment of our vision. We promote involvement of all stakeholders to ensure the particular needs of pupils and students are met. There are many times during the school year when the schools benefit from the assistance of interested and enthusiastic volunteers. You are therefore encouraged to volunteer your skills in the various academic and non-academic activities we have in our various schools. Members of staff are always ready to clarify how this can be achieved.
We look forward to your cooperation and once again, welcome you to a safe and fulfilling school year.

One day, every year, the whole world celebrates members of the noblest profession known to man - teachers. It is no mistake that the importance of the role of teachers has been recognised and a day set apart to let the world reflect on the impact they have made on the past, the impact they make on the future even as they judiciously carry out their duties in the present.
Over the years, teachers have learnt to be adaptable. Most have moved from the times of typewriters and chalkboards into the times of laptops, smaller devices and interactive whiteboards. Through it all, they have laid hold of the gems from the past and moved decisively towards the future.
This year’s theme for the World Teachers Day is “Invest in the future, invest in teachers” and it strikes me as very apt for we live in times where we must do all we possibly can to prepare our children for a future which they may not see but we believe in.
“Teachers are an investment for the future of countries. What today’s children will face in adult life cannot be predicted and so the teachers of today and tomorrow need the skills, knowledge and support that will enable them to meet the diverse learning needs of every girl and boy. (UNESCO, 2014)”1
This session, you have further proven how girded for the future you are with your concerted effort to make available virtual lessons for our pupils when our nation faced a possible epidemic situation of the Ebola Virus Disease. You rose up to the occasion and for this I say, well done.
When we think about the future, we often think of some distant time, but as days go by, we realise that the future comes upon us more swiftly than we often anticipate. In the course of discussions we may have with people, we constantly realise how rapidly the children we teach are developing. We also realise daily how quickly the world we live in is changing. In order to go ahead and prepare the children we teach for this unpredictable future, it is of great importance that we pay keen attention to professional and personal development.
We need to harness the requisite skills - technology and otherwise - as we have always done. In addition, we need to further develop a deep understanding of our roles as teachers because in preparing the children we teach for the future they will live in, we inadvertently prepare the future that we will ultimately live in.
On this day, I encourage us to celebrate, reflect on our practices, develop what is excellent about the past and present, seek out what is needed for the future and constantly have the picture of the future in front of us. A future where our children will say of their teachers, “I was well prepared for my future by my teachers.”
Happy World Teachers Day.
